Pop N Cut Labels

I had originally planned on using this card for Karen Burniston's November Designer Challenge, but I thought it didn't showcase the "Stitched" enough.  I used the Stampin Up exclusive base, Labels Framelits, Banners & Borders sets.  The stamp set is Yippee-Skippee (you can tell it's one of my newer sets as I've used it a lot lately).  I had a Red Glimmer paper circle already cut & was anxious to use it.

I colored the santa from Tag It with my Stampin Write Markers & fussy cut him for the center panel.  I used a Sizzlit strip to cut the word "Santa" from Red Glimmer Paper.  I cut the Merry Christmas sentiment using the Ticket punch.  I turned the Labels & Stitched Framlit on a diamond to get the stitching.
Happy Stamping & I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Accordian Snowman

I used Karen Burniston's Accordian die again to make a similar card from a few posts ago, but I used some circle punches to make a sparkly snowman.

Pop N Cut Thank You

I sent this thank you card to the wonderful Karen Burniston for sending me the Labels inset for my birthday.  I am so happy to add this die to my collection, as you know I love pop ups & these are so much fun.  I tried my hand at paper piecring around the edge of the label die, not as perfect as using a Stitched Framelit.  The trim is from the Gift Card Holder set & I backed the open holes with a piece of coordinating DSP.

The DSP is from Sale A Bration (yes it will be here soon - not too much longer to wait).  The stamp set is Yippee-Skippee.

Accordian Die

I had my Labels & Stitched Frames out so why not use them with Karen Burniston's Accordian die, they fit perfectly.  I used Pool Party for the base, Winter Frost DSP & Silver Glimmer paper on the snowflakes (retired) Northern Frost Sizzlit.  I put a turquoise rhinestone brad in the center of the snowflake & a regular rhinestone on the other.   The sentiment I found in my Mom's stash & borrowed it - sorry I don't remember the name of it, but I think it may have been a host set.

Pop N Cut Halloween.....yes again.

I do enjoy Halloween very much, as you can see with more Halloween cards after it's already passed.  I made these cards for the kids on our street & well honestly you can't just give to one because if that one tells the others they got a card & not them.....well it will be candy wars.  I've used the Square Ornate base, That's the Ticket stamp set & Ticket punch from Stampin Up.  The owl is a Sizzix die, love that sparkly hat.

The inside uses 3-D Muti Tier with some Vellum ghosts, spider punch, sparkly bat & Banners & Flagpole Sizzlit from Karen Burniston.

Here's another one using a bat Sizzlit, retired Hey, Ghoul Friend Stampin Up stamp set cut with Labels Collection Framelits.

Cool right?  The kids really liked this one because of the mummy.  The mummy & coffin are a Sizzix die, I covered the mummy in cheesecloth.....spooky.
Happy be-lated Halloween & Happy Stamping,

Karen Burniston's November Designer Challenge

Karen Burniston's November Designer Challenge was to use "RED" & "STITCHED"....well and of course a Karen Burniston die as they are all awesome.  I chose to use the exclusive Stampin Up card base #130099 with the Labels insert (you'll see soon).  For the wonderful stitching I used the Stitched Cirle & Labels Framelits and ran them through several times onto Very Vanilla.  I took my Black & Real Red Stampin Write Marker & drew on the stitch marks on the Framelit itself before running it through the big shot and that makes the stitch marks show up a lot more.  The side I decided to use is actually the reverse side.  On the front I spritzed with water to see what would happen to the ink & it spread really nice but I thought it was too busy for this particular card.  Next I sponged the edges with Baked Brown Sugar.  The sentiment is from Yipee-Skippee.  The leaf & acorn is from Autumn Accents.  I colored the leaf with markers, Watercolor Wonder Crayons & even stamped with (retired) French Foliage & (retired) Weathered.  For the acorn, I used my stylus to get some lines on the bottom portion & cut the top part with Silver Glimmer Paper.  I used a bit of burlap ribbon from the Holiday Mini & the Label Trellis Sizzlit.

The tag is cut from Karen's Gift Card Holder set & I stamped with (retired) Best Yet.  For the Label insert, I die cut out a circle in the middle, stitched around the edge with the Stitched Circle & Labels Framelit using the marker as I did on the front, then put a strip from the Label Trellis behind the opening & secured a leaf rhinestone  in the center.  I cut the Real Red ends with the Finishing Touches Edgelits.
To purchase any of the Stampin Up Products I've used and more, got to my online store.  If you don't have any of Karen Burniston's Pop N Cuts or Stitched Framelits...........what are you waiting for?  You need to get yourself some, they are the most fun dies.
Thanks to Karen for including me in the monthly challenge, it was so much fun.
Happy Stamping,

File Tab Pop N Cut

I used the Envelope Punch Board to make this file tab card.  Isn't he the cutest boy holding cookies?  I was given this stamp & the little gingerbread men die as a birthday present......birthdays are good.  My friends know me all to well.......stamps & dies are well appreciated in my home. LOL

What a shocker, I made it into a Pop N cut!!!!  I cut the Circle Label from a Window Sheet & then die cut a Circle Label onto white so I could stamp the sentiment & have all the little gingerbread men swirling around.  I also used the Banner & Border set for the pennants on the side, by cutting one of the banners in half.  I attached the Window Sheet with tiny staples & covered them up with the banner & g-bread.

Pop N Cut Veteran's Day

I made these Veteran's Day cards with my son's 1st grade class.  The kids were so impressed with the stars popping up in the middle & thought they were going to be so hard to make.  SO if a 1st grader can make them, then so can you.  The sentiment is computer generated & I cut them out with the Sassy Label.  I used my star die cuts, Loops & RIck Rack Sizzlits and the flag is a stamp I borrowed from my Mom (Thanks Mom).

I cut the computer generated sentiment from Karen Burniston's Gift Card Holder Framelits set, this particular set has 2 tag sizes, a gift card holder & a nice border.
I hope everbody has a wonderful Veteran's Day!  Thank you to all the Veteran's who fought for our country.

Monster Maniacs Pop N Cut

Here I used the new Monster Maniacs stamp set, it's so funny & cute.  To die cut the image I used Karen Burniston's Circle & Label Framelits along with Banners & Borders.  To get the red line around the image, simply keep the die over your card stock after cutting & trace around with a Stampin Write Marker.

I wanted to keep the inside simple so it didn't overwhelm with that fun holographic paper.  Behind the pop up area I coiled up some wire, glued it behind with glue dots & used glue dots to glue the hearts to the top.  When the recipient opens it, the hearts will giggle around - super fun & super cute.

Tag It Pop N Cut

For my birthday, my neighbor got me a present (stamp set - what a shocker) that was wrapped in this fun holographic paper & I thought it would be fun to use it in a card.  I used Tag It & the matching Framelits for the main image.  Karen Burniston's Banners & Borders on the top and on the banners I used the Sassy Label embossing folder to get that lovely pattern.  To color the image I used Stampin Write Markers directly on the stamp, huff & then stamp onto white card stock.

How fun right?  I had to use my present right away & get stamping.  I cut a spiral in the 3-D Multi Tier just as Karen Burniston describes on her blog, then glued the balloons to the spirals.  Note to self: use a smaller hole like a paper piercer as Karen used.  I also used the Flagpole & Banner Sizzlit to make the candles.

Halloween 3-D Multi Tier Pop N Cut

I've used the Square Ornate Base again for this spookalicious Halloween card along with Chalk Talk Framelits & a retired stamp called All Year Cheer set for the sentiment.  The bats came from a Sizzlit strip & the spider is a die cut, the gilter ribbon I had in my stash....what a surprise it's purple & has glitter.  ha ha ha

SO CUTE!  The ghosts are a Sizzix die that I cut from Vellum Card Stock (it's really nice & sturdy).  I used the Flagpole & Banner Sizzlit and stamped a spider web on there, I totally copied that one from Karen Burniston herself.
You can get the Vellum Card Stock or any other Stampin Up products from my online store.
